Main Digivolutions
The main digivolutions are seen throughout the majority of the digimon games, animes, card games, etc. They are from Fresh to In-Training to Rookie to Champion to Ultimate to Mega.
 Warp Digivolution
Warp Digivolution happens when a Digimon skips Digivolution stages while Digivolving. This is seen quite a few times with Agumon and Gabumon to get into a battle much quicker. In Digimon Data Squad this is also seen but is referred to as "Double Warp Digivolve" when the digimon go into their Mega forms because of skipping two forms. This form of Digivolution is also known as Blast Digivolution in Digimon World 3.
 Dark Digivolution
Dark Digivolution occurs when a digimon digivolves through hatred or the digimon is cared for in an evil manner. Agumon is seen Dark Digivolving into SkullGreymon during Digimon Adventure.Just like WarGrowlmon into Megidramon in Season 3.
 Virus Digivolution

 Shining Digivolution
Shining Digivolution is seen in Tamers when Calumon releases his digivolution power and makes all the digimon in the Digital World (except for those with tamers and Impmon) digivolve into their Mega forms.
 DNA Digivolution
DNA Digivolution refers to the combining of two digimon to become one stronger digimon. This is seen in mainly Digimon Adventure 02 but is also seen in the second digimon movie. It is also stated that DNA digivolution is useful because it combines the two digimon's powers and amplifies them making the result even stronger. When a DNA digimon speaks the voices of the original digimon can be heard in perfect unison.

Armor Digivolution is seen only throughout Digimon Adventure 02. The Digi-Destined utilize "Digi-Eggs" (Digimentals in Japanese) in combination with their digivice to help their digimon digivolve to the next level. As the story goes, the Digi-Eggs were an ancient power used by the first digimon that had trouble digivolving into champion for due to the Digital World been at an early stage. In the second season they are used because the Dark Digivice and the Control Spires where blocking a Digimon's ability to digivlove.

Ancient Hybrid Digimon
 Slide Evolution
Slide Evolution is actually a change from Human Hybrid to Beast Hybrid or vice-versa very quickly. Not only is this seen in Frontier but it is also seen in the other season from time to time.
 Other Digivolutions
Some Digivolutions do not follow any of the above process rules.
Digimon World contains the concept of Digivolution between Digimon of the same level by losing a battle. It is also implied in some Digimon media that this is how Millenniummon digivolves to its higher forms. Digivolution on the same level can also happen by achieving other requirements based on parameters, happiness or other factors. For example, Seadramon can Digivolve to Airdramon.
Snatchmon is created by the DNA Digivolution of four identical Vemmons. Both of these Digimon, along with Galacticmon, are capable of merging themselves with "real world" entities, like machines or planets, to Digivolve further.
